During a flight to Ohio, a Southwest Airlines passenger claims “Jesus told her” to open the aircraft door and bite another passenger.

Bites From Jesus

The 34-year-old, Elom Agbegninou, was headed to Ohio from Texas last Saturday when she got upset flight attendants wouldn’t allow her to reach the emergency exit. One passenger who saw Agbegninou headed to the door tackled her, but she responded by biting the passenger on the thigh. Agbegninou didn’t let go of her bite until the victim managed to jam his fingers into her mouth.

Jesus Told Her To Open The Door

After the melee, she smacked her head repeatedly against the floor. Yelling, “Jesus told her to fly to Ohio, and Jesus told her to open the door,” as stated in the documents by the U.S. District Court in Arkansas,

Other passengers who witnessed the ordeal gave their version of the incident.

“They were rushing to the back of the plane to help. I was thinking about the worst case, probably that plane will crash, but I know it’s a very low probability,” said passenger Ding Yu tas reported to Fox News Digital.

Emergency Landing

Southwest Airlines

The wild disturbance ultimately forced the Southwest flight to make an emergency landing at Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport in Little Rock around 3:30 p.m. — turning a three-hour trip into a six-hour trek.

Due to the uncontrollable behavior of the passenger, the plane made an emergency landing in Little Rock. The issue extended the traveler’s trip from three to six hours. When the plane landed, authorities immediately held Agbegninou in custody. Responders treated the bite victim with antibiotics.

Once safely on the ground, Agbegninou was removed by officers while the bite victim was treated with antibiotics and hepatitis shots.

What’s to come:

Once Agbegninou spoke to authorities, she reportedly left her home Saturday without telling her husband and wanted to visit a family friend in Maryland. She also claims it’s been a long time since she’s flown, and she felt a lot of anxiety.

Agbegninou will face charges of assault and interference with crew members.

According to the criminal complaint, Agbegninou is expected to face charges of assault within maritime and territorial jurisdiction and interference with flight crew members and attendants.
